Christmas and Holiday Baby Names

It's the most wonderful time of the year! In honor of Christmas, I compiled a list of baby names with holiday spirit. Some of them have obvious connections, and some of them have meanings that are seasonal. Holly and Star are wonderful names with holiday connotations. And of course, Nicholas is a great name for a boy born in December; the connection to Santa Claus (or the actual Saint Nicholas) is just subtle enough for it to work.

  2. I think cute twin girl names (that were born on Christmas Day or Eve) would be:
    Merri-lee and Natalie
    and then middle names like Joyce, Hope, Grace, Mercy, Love, or Faith:+)
